2 Chronicles 6:41b
....Let thy priests, O Lord God, be clothed with salvation, and let thy saints rejoice in goodness.
There are reasons why all believers can rejoice in the Lord and His goodness and they are:
(a) The Lord God is the creator and sustainer of all creation. He created man in His image and likeness. God breathed His breath into man, and he became a living soul. The Holy Spirit lives in all humanity and especially believers.
(b) God is the provider and deliverer of His People. In the OT, God is seen as the one who delivered His people and brought them safely through from whatever the situation was.
(c) God the Father gave His Son and the Son gave His life to save man from the bondage of sin and the eternal separation it brings. In the NT Christ is our Savior.
(d) God freely gives His grace to all who accepts His Son Jesus as their Savior through faith in Him.
(e) All believers are clothed in God's righteous garment of salvation where the believer will spend eternity with Him.
(f) When believers get to heaven there is a crown of life and righteous waiting, and we will have transformed bodies like Christ our Savior.
(g) God left the Holy Spirit as our heavenly compass as we travel this Christian journey.
(h) God surrounds us with His grace supplying all our needs spiritual and physical.
Rejoice! Rejoice! God is good all the time.
